Three days ago, we made history at Anime Boston with 3000 people "Serenaded" in one place at one time, a record no other person can claim to rival.
Unfortunately, we were defeated, by 6 votes, by a loose alliance of Kingdom Hearts fans. They are likely weaboos, Gaia Online users, and, yes, quite possibly, furries. And they must be stopped, for their counterproductive efforts have kept the Serenade from being heard by what would have been its largest audience yet at Anime Boston's Masquerade.
Yet, in Serenade-ing roughly 4500 people over the weekend (including the Saturday Morning screening), we have made great strides, and shall not be defeated so easily. The effort will continue. I encourage fans of the video to support it at other cons that it will be submitted to - vote for it if you're attending, get friends to vote if you're not. Together we will Serenade the world.
Because of the nature of this video, I really have no moral high ground that I can use to object to its showing up on YouTube, but that won't stop me from trying.
I WILL BE UPLOADING THIS VIDEO TO MY OWN YOUTUBE ACCOUNT. DO NOT UPLOAD IT TO YOURS UNLESS IT IS A "LIVE" COPY (see below)
Because half the fun is in the audience reaction, I encourage people to take video of the actual contest screenings and post it to whatever sites they choose, as long as they do the following in their video's description:
1) Link to the AMV.Org listing for this video
2) Link to my YouTube listing for this video
3) Contact me privately (on the 'Org forums, through YT, or through my email with a link to your audience video as well as info on the convention and which contest screening it was, as well as the original movie file if possible as I'd like to collect them.

Thank you for your support, and I just lost the game.
